Creamy and warming delicious Leek and Potato Soup, its easy and quick to make with step by step video, pictures and recipe instructions.

Sometimes simple is best! With just a few ingredients it makes an amazing rich soup bursting with flavour, creamy and smooth texture.  Ticking the spot for just what was needed after a busy day of batch cooking for my new business.

VIDEO IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RECIPE ⇓

INGREDIENTS                                 SERVES 6

  • 4 Leeks, chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • Garlic finely sliced
  • onion medium finely sliced
  • 900ml hot stock  (chicken or vegetable)
  • 200 ml Whole fat milk
  • Olive oil or spray low calorie oil
  • Salt and Pepper

On the Hob!

Using a large pan place on a medium heat, spray or drizzle with oil.  Throw in the leeks to gently soften. I think the best way to make the soup full of flavour is to be patient allowing them to soften slowly.  Whilst they are softening, chop the onion and garlic and then throw in the pan stirring well.

Meanwhile stirring regularly, chop up the potatoes.  After about 15 minutes the leeks and onions should be reduced and sweated down.  Next add the stock to the mixture, add the milk and potatoes.  Bring up to boil and a gentle simmer.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

The soup needs to bubble for about 20 – 25 minutes until the potatoes are soft.  Next blitz the soup in a blender. If you like your soup chunky don’t bother with this next bit!

Serve up and Enjoy!  Yum
